Watch Tyson Fury wish arch-rival Deontay Wilder a happy birthday as he turns 36 today

WBC heavyweight, Lineal and Ring Magazine champion, Tyson Fury has taken to social media to wish former titleholder and heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder a happy birthday. Wilder turned 36 today, October 22. The  birthday wish clearly had no sarcasm or baiting, just Fury trying to let bygones be bygones considering that Wilder was still unwilling to settle their dispute following Fury’s knockout win in their third fight. Wilder's two professional losses have come at the hands of Fury and Wilder infamously refused shaking Fury after their last fight. “This is a very special happy birthday message to my ol’ mate Deontay ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder,” Fury says. “Have a fantastic day, Wilder. Thank you for the great fights that we had, the trilogy — grea...

Tyson Fury doesn’t see Anthony Joshua as his biggest British heavyweight rival

Tyson Fury has rated Joe Joyce as a tougher challenger to his WBC heavyweight title than long-time rival Anthony Joshua. Fury and Joshua were set to fight earlier this year but the bout was scrapped after an arbitration judge ruled in favour of Deontay Wilder's trilogy with the Gispy King, which Fury would go on to win by 11th round stoppage. Joshua instead took on former unified cruiserweight king Oleksandr Usyk, but was defeated  by the Ukrainian. Fury now thinks that Olympic silver medalist Joe Joyce is a bigger threat in the ring than Anthony Joshua. Speaking in a recent interview, he said: "Tyson said that he’s the best one out there. That’s what Tyson’s opinion was. Can he go all the way? Yes he can. He’s got a good ticker, a big heart. He’s strong, he walks forward...

Deontay Wilder finally breaks his silence after his defeat to Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder has finally broken his silence after losing to Tyson Fury following their WBC heavyweight title showdown in Las Vegas over the weekend. The 35-year-old was stopped in the 11th round after twice knocking down Fury. Following the defeat, Wilder had initially refused to congratulate his rival's triumph, saying he had no respect for the British heavyweight.

Deontay Wilder handed six-months medical suspension following his knockout defeat to Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder has been handed six-month medical suspension following his knockout defeat by Tyson Fury in Las Vegas, another major blow to the Bronze Bomber's boxing career. The American heavyweight was knocked down three times by the Gypsy King on his way to victory in their trilogy fight last weekend. Wilder was immediately taken to a Nevada hospital to be checked over after the bruising encounter and he will now undergo surgery on a broken hand next week. As a result of his injuries, the Nevada State Athletic Commission have suspended him until April 8, meaning he cannot return to the ring until that date unless he is medically cleared by a doctor beforehand. Wilder is now expected to undergo surgery next week when he returns to his home state of Alabama. His co-manage...

Tyson Fury must be forced to fight me – Dillian Whyte

Dillian Whyte has asked the WBC to force Tyson Fury to fight him next. According to him, the WBC should give Fury “no choice” but to accept a mandatory title fight.

Fury and Wilder face to face – expect mind games!

The last time Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder sat at a press conference to debate their fight, the first meaningful blow was landed. Trouble was, Wilder did not realise. "What I did last time wasn't good enough so I'm changing it up, and we'll look for the knockout," Fury said. "It's a bold move to fight fire with fire. But there it was, not so much a clue but a clear and obvious declaration from Fury that he intended to perform a 180-degree about-turn with his tactics. Sure enough, he rampaged through a startled Wilder in seven dominant rounds of their rematch. They will come head to head for the first time since Wilder was left bloodied and floored, his unbeaten record and fearsome aura in tatters, on Tuesday at 9pm to officially announce a trilogy match for July 24 in L...
